Here’s a fun little card featuring wood veneers (used to make the trees) and some fun stamped and colored elements (the snowman & bird). These 2 friends are totally in the holiday spirit.

Got some fun cards coming up and a MONSTER of a project to share on the last day so stay tuned folks ~ it’s gonna be good.

Glad Tidings of Great Joy!

Hi All,

Who’s ready for winter?! Oh man, I am so pumped for winter and all the holiday festivities it brings. In anticipation for the upcoming holiday season I have started to create Christmas cards. I will likely have a new one to share each day leading up to the week before Christmas. If you are interested in any of the cards please leave a comment and let me know! I’d love to hear feedback on which styles, colors, and themes you like!

On to today’s card.

For this card, I wanted to try out some inking techniques and create a snowbank. I achieved this look with some masking and 2 tone color blending of inks. I loved the results of the technique. It looks like it is watercolor with several layers of color, but truly it is a white base with 2 blues.
